Superstar Thai actor-model Toni Rakkaen headlines this striking debut feature from Korean-American writer-director Josh Kim. As the now […]
While Love Sick [season one] can be described as “up close and personal”, the second season is chaotic and complicated, but in a good way. Suffice to say, viewers have voluntarily made “emotional” investment on the characters and the series itself. I have to argue that yes, Season 1 is simple and engrossing – but Season 2 has something that the original series don’t have – Earn and Pete. I also like to think that Jeed, being the most villainous among the girls, has the potential for dramatic acting and so is Yuri, who gets more charming after each episode.

I should have been blogging about Thai BLs years ago! (nope, Thai movies came early in my radar, but this Thai BL ‘phenomenon’ appeared to be an adventure into the unknown).
I first saw Toni Rakkaen in Josh Kim’s How to Win at Checkers (Every Time) and while his role is short, he managed to make a lasting impression.
Toni Rakkaen “IIrah Wimonchailerk” อิราวิมลชัยฤกษ์ plays the Adult ‘Oat’ who looks back on his life on the day of his own draft. Unlike his older bro who was murdered during his military draft, Toni’s character puts all the stops to prevent such tragedy from happening. His ‘Oat’ learns to be cunning, and shrewd and unforgiving.
So there was a time when the Yaoi (BL) universe revolves around two Japanese actors – Hamao Kyusoke and Daisuke Watanabe. Hamao has, of course, been “forced” to retire and their love team is no more. And then there was Mario Maurer and Pchy, but instead of playing with the fans’ collective imagination, they killed the fantasy even before it could have been conceived… [ Welcome to Fanboy diaries, a blog-a-thon (of sorts) featuring the events, buzz, casting news, and even personal bits of info about Thai actors Ngern and August ]
Hi Thai BL lovers! In this series of articles, Part 1 is all BL TV shows, while Part 2 here is all about movies, so here we go!
